Worship: Every Sunday at 11am

February 26, 2017 “The End”
Rev. Hoyt-McDaniels with the Chalice Choir
If our lives are one source of our faith, then our faith is never complete as long as we are living.  Right up to the end we are accepting challenges and changing what we think we know.  And then what?

March 5, 2017 “First Church:  Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow”
Rev. Hoyt-McDaniels with the Community Choir
We celebrate the 140th anniversary of the First Church congregation.

March 12, 2017 “Make Something Happen”
Rev. Hoyt-McDaniels
Experience is not only something that happens to us as we move through life.  We can also create experiences for ourselves specifically because there might be something there we want to learn.

March 19, 2017 “”
John Bloom-Ramirez with the Community Choir

March 26, 2017 “The Voice of the People”
UUSC “Justice Sunday”
Rev. Hoyt-McDaniels
Oscar Romero and Cesar Chavez, who we will celebrate today, both found themselves at a time when the people needed a leader, when the community needed to speak with one voice.

April 16, 2017 “What we talk about when we talk about Easter and Passover”
Rev. Hoyt-McDaniels
Jesus and Moses are the stars of these stories.  But the myths aren’t really about them, they are about us.  What does this tell us about our relationship to the stories of the great men and women in our world today?

April 23, 2017 “An Environmental Success Story”
Rev. Hoyt-McDaniels with combined choirs of First Church, Studio City and Emerson
In the age of probably irreversible climate change, what goal should we be working for?  What would be a “win” for the environmental justice movement of today?

April 30, 2017 “Underground”
Rev. Hoyt-McDaniels
Prophetic men and women show us that making change takes work.  Nature teaches us patience because making charge isn’t entirely up to us.  How do we know when to work, and when to wait?  And how do we stay involved?

May 14, 2017 “My Hero”
Rev. Hoyt-McDaniels
Who inspires you?  Who do you admire?  The world is made a better place in small actions as well as large, in local places, and well as globally.

May 21, 2017 “First!”
Rev. Hoyt-McDaniels
Harvey Milk’s was the first openly gay politician elected to public office.  Those who are “first” define the limits of the possible for the rest of us, but they also prove that what we thought was impossible never really was.

May 28, 2017 “Thomas Starr King”
Rev. Hoyt-McDaniels
Born in New England, with both Unitarian and Universalist connections, Starr King became famous as the pre civil war minister of the San Francisco Unitarian Church.  His story is an example of the power of prophetic persons, and is maybe especially fitting for Memorial Day.

June 4, 2017 “Music Sunday”
Rev. Hoyt-McDaniels

June 11, 2017 “How Did We Do?”
Rev. Hoyt-McDaniels
Let’s end the year by celebrating what we accomplished.
